I ❤ my job. Saltmarsh survey along the River Avon under the M5 motorway bridge.

I ❤ my job. Bog asphodel survey. Best office ever and on the drive home, where I got caught up in the most intense electrical storm I've ever experienced. Had to ride it out on top of the north pennines.

Glen Etive Waterfalls. An image from July taken along the amazing Glen Etive road in Scotland I'm getting very excited now to be heading here for a week starting this friday. Forecast lots of snow but i think some of the side roads wont be achievable unless on foot. Keeping my fingers crossed for some frozen waterfalls which is something I've never seen. Thanks for looking. . ■Canon6D ■16-35mm @ 27mm ■F/9 ■ISO100 ■1/25 secs ____________________ WWW.GREGGCASHMOREPHOTOGRAPHY.COM ____________________ FACEBOOK.COM/GREGGCASHMOREPHOTO ____________________

Did you know that there is a small sandstone island near the seaside resort of Whitley Bay in Tyne and Wear? It was originally called Bates Island as it was owned by the Bates family who were prominent locally. Now called St. Mary’s Island, it is connected to the coast at low tide by a rocky causeway. Other than a single private residence, the main feature of the island is this beautiful lighthouse which was built in 1898. @focusbug has captured the structure perfectly, with the most gently stunning backdrop of dawn, (or perhaps sunset?) 😍 . . 📍St Mary’s Lighthouse, Tyne and Wear. . . 📷Captured by @focusbug ⬅️ Check out this account for more glorious shots! . . 🇬🇧Tag us to be featured! #GloriousBritain #GB_GB and check out our Glorious Landscapes of Wales challenge with @explore.wales and @landscapes_of_britain - tag #GLOW_Comp for your chance to feature on our pages 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 . . . . . . . #britain #photooftheday #ukpotd #visitbritain #bestofday #explore_britain #england #wales #british #genuinebritain #osmaps #natgeo #igersuk #instabritain #visitbritain #agameoftones #genuinebritain #uk_greatshots #visualsoflife #bestukpics #landscapes_of_britain #our_britain #exploringwales #tyneandwear #stmarysisland #lighthouse #pinkskies

The trig pillar was first used in the retriangulation of Great Britain in 1936. On that day, a group of surveyors gathered around a white concrete pillar in a field in Cold Ashby and began the retriangulation of Great Britain. • In 1935 Ordnance Survey, in a project led by Brigadier Martin Hotine, decided to implement a complete new control network for the whole country and at the same time unify the mapping from local county projections onto a single national datum, projection and reference system. This led to the OSGB36 datum and The National Grid, both of which are still with us today. • Triangulation works by determining the location of a point by measuring angles to it from known points at either end of a fixed baseline and in this case, those known points were the 6,500 + trig pillars erected across the country. • Hundreds of trigs have been lost to housing developments, farming, coastal erosion and other causes. The vast majority follow the standard Hotine design, but some are stone built, and in Scotland there are some ‘Vanessas’ which are taller, cylindrical concrete pillars. • You can only imagine how hard it was for surveyors of the past to not only map Britain, but to also locate sites for trig pillars and carry the materials to remote sites to then build the trig pillars too. • Check out the Ordnance Survey website for more interesting info ➡️ https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/blog/2016/04/happy-80th-birthday-to-the-trig-pillar/
If all nighttime #GetOutside adventures looked like this...amazing shot by Instagrammer of the week @stuartmcglennon : Wastwater Astro - The Wasdale area is a special place to me, where most of my photography is done, focusing on the lake and it’s surrounding mountains. This shot is facing away from the classic view down the lake, focusing on the screes of Ilgill Head and the Milky Way in the background.
